This is Sleepingdog's third album after Naked In A Clean Bed and the critically-acclaimed Polar Life. Once upon a time in the days of the Belgian Franc, Chantal Acda made the acquaintance Adam Bryanbaum Wiltzie, and the two became fast friends through a mutual love of disco bowling, and 1970s Danish scary movies. They first collaborated on vocals on the infamous last track "The Struggle" on Mr. Wiltzie's 2004 The Dead Texan. Now, over the course of 10 years, this strange friendship has slowly developed into a musical collaboration which at this point is a rarity for Mr. Wiltzie, because of his notorious slow-burning output for his legendary project Stars Of The Lid. For With Our Heads In The Clouds And Our Hearts In The Fields, these two have somehow gone back in time to capture the sound of glacial-moving, dark cough syrup pop music. Mr. Wiltzie has manipulated his trademark haunting ambience, deconstructing and funneling it through the beautiful voice and song compositions of Chantal Acda. Together, Sleepingdog have gently abducted these gaseous tones and choruses of Pacific tree frogs into some beautifully-crafted, melancholic orchestration that reminds us all that we exist in a world of strangers, drifting only two feet apart.
